Miss Collinsville(s) To Compete At Miss Oklahoma First Week In June
Hailey Raetz (Miss Collinsville 2016) & Jolie Simmons (2016 Miss Collinsville Outstanding Teen) will be competing at the Miss Oklahoma Pageant in June.
We are always asked to not publish photos of the wardrobe choices before the actual Miss Oklahoma pageant but I did want to show a non-detailed sample from the informal Collinsville gathering Thursday May 26, 2016. The event was the first held in the (almost) complete American Legion Building which has under gone an amazing tranformation following the July 2012 roof collapse. (Check back for more on our historic 70 year old building later). -- Ted Wright 5/27/2016
The Miss Oklahoma Pegeant will be held the first week in June at the ORU Maybee Center. Teen Finals are June 10th and Miss Finals are June 11th.
